Maybe Najib should just apologise to the public. Remember the minerals and oil in the land belongs to the people, not the government. So he is rather childish for a DPM to make such statements.
The Star reported as follows :
Najib, who appeared to be a bit annoyed, said the people must understand that for every litre, the price was subsidised 30 sen.
He also said they have forgotten about the RM625 rebate given to owners with vehicles up to 2,000cc that was announced in June.
“The rebate, if translated, will cost between 35 sen and 40 sen a litre. If the people do not appreciate the rebates, it is better for us not issue any more in the future.
